It was a dramatic scene.
Marilyn Mosby stood at a podium festooned with microphones that also sported a large emblem emblazoned with the scales of justice and the words “Office of the State’s Attorney for Baltimore City”. She was there to announce charges of manslaughter and assault against 6 police officers accused of murdering 25 year old Freddie Gray.
Ms. Mosby was poised, passionate, forceful and articulate. There’s no question she politicized the case but Marilyn Mosby single-handedly ended several nights of chaos by being the much needed leader the city of Baltimore desperately needed.
Pretty sure she never uttered the word “thugs” either.
Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz, Jr. could learn a thing or two from Ms. Mosby.
On this episode, the Beep’s continued missteps handling the outcry over casting and imagery used in the upcoming Netflix series The Get Down and his laughable Bronx Walk of Fame induction of D-level actress turned conservative wingnut Stacey Dash get the unique Robles & Rosado treatment.
On the show we also discuss the disappointing Dance of the Century between God-fearing and filthy-rich Manny Pacquiao versus the undefeated grinning-and-sinning, super-rich Floyd Mayweather.
A special shout-out goes out to Chicken Fingers Rosario for helping Mike save 100 bucks on the debacle…I mean “fight”.
Robles & Rosado: We’re Not Thugs Nor Are We As Negative As You Think We Are
